No sign of anyone there or any work going on. Car par is open but back of the pub fenced off from it.

Popped down there just recently for a swift half only to find that the current lease has expired and the new owners are in the process of refurbishing the building ready for a planned mid-2014 re-opening. Please don't make the mistake of coming here without first checking that it has re-opened.

Always a pleasure to eat here. Decent portions, quality food and caters for all tastes, children, vegetarians and dieters will all find something to eat at the Sondes Arms. They carry a decent selection of ales including traditional handpulled. The service is always polite and friendly. Parking can be limited at peak times - this is the only downfall

Visited on a Monday evening. Had a drink in the comfortable lounge followed by a very good sirloin steak (specials board). The desserts were a bit disappointing, a very small portion of apple crumble and very mediocre ice cream. Having said that the welcome was good as was the service

Sunday lunch. I normally have a rule that I never order "roast" in a pub or restaurant. I broke this rule because this restaurant doesn't do any grills on Sunday. As usual I was disappointed. The beef was very well done, despite my check in advance eliciting "the chef says it's carving pink in the middle". The vegetables were "al... More

Visited Saturday with a party of 8. Lovely friendly restaurant, Great food, Plenty parking, Staff very attentive-nothing too much trouble. I was a little worried as we were informed on booking they had a large party of 25 eating an thought the meal would be drawn out. I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't distract from our service at all.... More

Don't know why the bad reviews people? The service is great, the food is great, one bad thing is we went here for New Year's Eve but the atmosphere was terrible but for any meal, the atmosphere, service and food is really good!

We went to the Sondes Arms on Tuesday night (13/08/2013) the building and court yard is beautiful with ample parking. We had booked a table although it wasn't majorly busy. We ordered garlic prawns and whitebait for starters, lamb shank and rib eye for main and shared a cheesecake for dessert. Food was served quickly and the portions were massive.... More
